  global menubar Integration with firefox 13 has a long delay

Bug description:
  The reaction of the global menubar in Firefox is slow - especially on
  displaying the menu item chosen in HUD.

  Steps to reproduce:
  a) Start firefox with extension activated
  b) Tap ALT key (HUD appears)
  c) Type e.g. "addons" - "Tools > Add-ons" appears as the first entry with a noticable delay
  d) Press ENTER -> Long delay (several seconds) until addons tab appears

  Same also for other menu items.
  As using normal menus works really slick, the global menu is a productivity slow-downer in this case.
  Compared to Nautilus there the HUD has a fast reaction, also LibreOffice HUD reaction is fast.
  I found that Thunderbird has a similar delay as firefox although it seems worse in Firefox.

  Firefox 13 on Ubuntu 12.04 with latest updates.
